Illustrative Server Environment According to one embodiment of the present invention, FIG. 2 shows one embodiment of a server device. Server device 200 may include a greater number of components than shown. The components shown, however, are sufficient to disclose exemplary embodiments for carrying out the invention. The server device 200 can be used, for example, to operate as the clip server 108 of FIG.

  The server device 200 includes an arithmetic processing device 212, a video display adapter 214, and a mass storage device that all communicate with each other via a bus 222. This mass storage device typically includes RAM 216, ROM 232 and one or more permanent mass storage devices such as a hard disk drive 228, a tape device, an optical drive and / or a floppy disk drive. The mass storage device stores an operating system 220 for controlling the operation of the server 102. Any general purpose operating system can be used. A basic input / output system (“BIOS”) 218 is also provided to control the low-level operation of the server device 200. As illustrated in FIG. 2, the server device 200 may also be connected to the Internet or the network via a network interface unit 210 configured for use with various communication protocols including TCP / IP protocol, UDP / IP protocol, etc. It can communicate with several other communication networks such as network 105 and wireless network 110 in FIG. Network interface unit 210 is sometimes known as a transceiver, data transceiver, network interface card (NIC), and the like.

  Server device 200 may also include an SMTP handler application for sending and receiving electronic mail. Server device 200 can also include an HTTP handler application for receiving and delivering HTTP requests, and an HTTPS handler application for processing secure connections. The HTTPS handler application can initiate communication with an external application in a secure manner.

  Server device 200 also includes an input / output interface 224 for communicating with external devices such as a mouse, keyboard, scanner, or other input device not shown in FIG. Similarly, server device 200 may further include additional mass storage devices such as CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive 226 and hard disk drive 228, for example. The hard disk drive 228 is used by the server device 200 to store application programs and the like, among others.

  The mass storage device as described above illustrates another type of computer readable medium, i.e., a computer storage medium. A computer storage medium is a volatile, non-volatile, removable and removable implemented in any method or technique for storing information such as computer readable instructions, data structures, program modules or other data, for example. Impossible media can be included. Examples of computer storage media are RAM, ROM, EEPROM, flash memory or other storage technology, CD-ROM, digital versatile disc (DVD) or other optical storage, magnetic cassette, magnetic tape, magnetic disk storage Device or other magnetic storage device, or any other medium that can be used to store desired information and that can be accessed by a computing device.

  The mass storage device also stores program codes and data. One or more applications 250 are loaded into the mass storage device and run on the operating system 220. Specific examples of application programs include e-mail programs, schedulers, calendars, security services, transcoders, database programs, word processing programs, spreadsheet programs, and others. Mass storage may further include applications such as web service 252, clip manager 254, and clip store 256, for example.

  Web service 252 is configured to manage requests from browser applications on client devices and to provide web-based content in response. As such, the web service 252 can include applications such as Apache, Internet Information Server (IIS), Netscape, National Supercomputer Application Laboratory (NCSA), and the like. In one embodiment, the web service 252 communicates with the client browser application using HTTP. However, the web service can also execute server-side scripts (CGI scripts, JSPs, ASPs, etc.) that provide functions such as database search and electronic commerce. In one embodiment, the web service 252 interacts with the clip manager 254 to enable clipping of content provided to the client browser for provisioning to another computing device. In one embodiment, the web service 252 may allow clip icons, drop-down menus, pop-up menus, or similar clip mechanisms that allow end users to select content for provisioning. The web service 252 can receive a clip mechanism from the clip manager 254. The clip mechanism may further allow the end user to supply an identifier that uniquely indicates the remote device to which the clipped content is to be supplied.

  Clip manager 254 is configured to receive clipped content from web service 252 along with the identifier of the remote device. Clip manager 254 can use the identifier to determine a format compatible with the identified remote device, and if necessary, clip manager 254 reformats the clipped content into a common format. be able to. The clip manager 254 can further use the remote device identifier to provide the clipped and reformatted content to the remote device. In one embodiment, the clip manager 254 can send clipped and reformatted content to the remote device using any of a variety of message protocols including SMS. In another embodiment, clip manager 254 can send a message to a remote device, which can include hooks or similar mechanisms that indicate where clipped content can be obtained. . For example, in one embodiment, the hook can include a URL that further includes a storage location identifier for clipped content on the server. When the remote device end user receives the message and selects the hook, the clipped content is accessed using the storage location identifier and displayed using the remote device browser or other suitable application. For example, if the clipped content includes text such as driving instructions, web page content, etc., suitable applications may include client browsers, word processors, and the like. In any event, clip manager 254 may use process 400 of FIG. 4 and interact with process 300 of FIG. 3 in one embodiment.

  Clip store 250 includes virtually any storage mechanism for storing and managing clipped content, including files, folders, databases, and the like. In one embodiment, clipped content is organized using information associated with the identifier of the remote device. However, the clipped content can also be easily accessed by the client device that clipped the content. As such, the clipped content may include information associated with the client device, the end user of the client device, and the like. For example, in one embodiment, the end user of the client device has an account identifier that allows the client device to store and retrieve clipped content from the clip store 250.

  Although illustrated in FIG. 2 as different components within the server device 200, the web service 252, the clip manager 254, and the clip store 256 can be in any of a variety of ways without departing from the scope of the present invention. Can be arranged, combined, etc. For example, the web service 252 and the clip manager 254 can be arranged as a single component. Further, web service 252, clip manager 254, and clip store 256 can reside in one or more other computing devices that are substantially similar to server device 200.

Generalized Operation The operation of certain aspects of the present invention will now be described with respect to FIG. FIG. 3 illustrates a logic flow diagram generally illustrating one embodiment of a process for selecting clip content for delivery to a remote device. Process 300 of FIG. 3 can represent, for example, an interaction between a client device, eg, client device 104, and a server device, eg, clip server 108.

  Process 300 begins after the start block, at block 302, after an end user using a computing device, such as client device 104 of FIG. 1, for example, accesses the content over the network. In one embodiment, the content is accessed by the client device using a web browser.

  As an illustrative example, the end user gives the remote device a set of driving directions to a particular point of interest, even though the end user's client computing device is not currently networked to the remote device. You may want to. The end user can access the website on the server using the client's web browser and request the desired driving direction. Obviously, however, the present invention is not limited to the displayed content, and other content can be determined including audio files, moving images, image files, binary files, and the like.

  Processing then flows to block 304 where the end user can select and clip the desired content using various clip mechanisms. For example, the clip mechanism used can include buttons on a toolbar, such as a browser toolbar, links accessible via a browser, displayed icons, executable applications, scripts, and the like. In one embodiment, the clip mechanism can reside on the server and can be displayed for use via the client's browser. Thus, in one embodiment, no permanent changes or additional permanent applications need be present on the client device. In any case, the end user may select a clip mechanism, which then captures the determined content. In this example, the clip mechanism clips the displayed driving instructions.

  Process 300 continues to block 306 where the clip mechanism or related application requires the end user to enter a destination identification. In our implementation, the end user may wish to provide driving instructions to a mobile device or similar remote device. In this embodiment, the identifier is then a telephone number, mobile identification number (MIN), electronic serial number (ESN) or similar identifier to uniquely identify the remote device intended to supply the clipped content. May be included. In one embodiment, the identifier is an IP address associated with the remote device.

  Process 300 flows to block 308 where the end user then requests that the clipped content be delivered to the identified destination using a clip mechanism or similar mechanism. Processing then continues to decision block 310 where a determination is made as to whether more content should be clipped for delivery. If no additional content is clipped, process 300 returns to the call process to perform other actions. If additional content is to be clipped, process 300 loops back to block 302 and performs substantially as described above.

  FIG. 4 illustrates a logic flow diagram generally illustrating one embodiment of a process for managing the supply of clipped content to a remote device in accordance with the present invention. The process 400 of FIG. 4 may be implemented on a server, such as the clip server 108 of FIG.

  Process 400 begins at block 402 after the start block, where clipped content is received for delivery to another computing device. This other computing device may include, for example, the remote devices 106-107 of FIG. Further, this content can be clipped using the process 300 of FIG. 3 above. Processing then continues to block 404 where an identifier associated with the computing device that receives the clipped content is received.

  Processing continues to the next block 406 where the identifier can be used to determine characteristics of the target computing device. In one embodiment, the identifier may be used to search a database, text, file, etc. to determine a content format compatible with the target computing device. In another embodiment, the identifier can be used to send a query to the target computing device to confirm the common format of the clipped content. In determining the common format, processing proceeds to block 408 where the clipped content can be formatted using the common format. In our current driving instructions embodiment, the clipped content can be formatted into an SMS message. In another implementation, clipped content can be formatted for display in a browser format using HTML, WML, WML script, Java script, and the like. Similarly, clipped content can be formatted using compatible audio formats, image formats, or other formats suitable for the type of clipped content and the target computing device. In one embodiment, a message hook, such as a URL, script, program, etc., can be inserted into a message mechanism, such as an SMS message, where the message hook is associated with the storage location of the clipped content. Storage location address, etc. When the SMS message is received by the target computing device, a message hook can be selected to trigger access to the clipped content.

  The present invention, however, is not limited to these mechanisms, and virtually any message mechanism can be selected to implement clipped and formatted content for delivery. For example, clipped content can be supplied via email, HTTP, IM, MMS, etc.

  Process 400 then continues to block 410 where clipped and formatted content is provided to the target computing device using the selected message mechanism. Upon delivery of clipped content, process 400 returns to the call process to perform other actions.

  It will be understood that each block of the flowchart illustrations discussed above and combinations of blocks in the flowchart illustrations above can be implemented by computer program instructions. When these program instructions are provided to the processor, a machine can be created in which the instructions executing on the processor generate a means for performing the operations specified in the block or blocks in the flowchart. The computer program instructions can be executed by a processor, and the sequence of operational steps to be executed by the processor specifies the instructions to execute on the processor in a block or blocks in the flowchart. A computer-implemented process can be created that provides the steps to perform the action.

  Accordingly, the block of the flowchart supports a combination of means for performing the specified action, a combination of steps for performing the specified action, and a means for program instructions for performing the specified action.
